I worked at IBM as a contractor (less than a year)

Pros

They have nice friendly people' and you get the chance to work with a vast array of technologies. Also, they trust you to make the right decisions with projects.

Cons

I was full time supplemental, which is a fixed contact for 3 years. It doesn't have much for career advancement potential. Great for just out of college people, but mid to senior people will find it very hard to be hired in as regular IBM.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Establish a better career path for senior level developers.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    IBM does everything for everyone.. broad range of customers and experiences available. People outside IBM take note that you are an IBMer.

    Cons

    IBM's greatest asset of its size is also its biggest downfall.. very hard to get something done quickly. There is also an overall trend to squeeze the middle layer of the company, lower end work is done offshore..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow the pace of upper management headcount growth
